The functional inverse of Statistics AmplificationStatistics Reduction reduces the overall parameters of one's opponent, such as physical or magical strength, defense, or speed, to hamper their fighting capabilities.

A common Statistics Reduction ability on the Pokemon game series is Intimidate, which reduces the opposing Pokemon's physical attack.

The effects of these abilities are usually temporary and may be reapplied or even stacked in rapid succession to prolong and increase the ability's effectiveness. Statistics Reduction is most frequently seen in video game series like Pokemon or RPG games.

The effects of Statistics Amplification are entirely restricted to reducing the raw stats of one's opponent. The ability to eliminate the special powers of one's opponent should be listed under Power Nullification. Adding additional inhibiting effects, such as poison or paralysis, should be listed under Status Effect Inducement.
